The Green Energy Transition Could Mean More Reliance on China

As Elliott Zaagman of the Maritime Executive writes, the green energy transition could lead to more reliance on China.

The C3 Take
  • China holds a dominant position in the manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries used in electric cars and also is a producer of the rare earth metals used to produce these batteries.
  • In order to supply the green energy transition, imports of materials from China will have to increase.

“Coordinating and scaling such a supply chain would take time, money and significant negotiation, both in Washington and overseas. For a Biden administration’s clean energy vision to become a reality, it will likely be much cheaper, faster and easier to go through China.”
